        ORBIS CHRISTIANI STATUS (1590) / [Jean de Serres] V. Partis Commentariorum de statu religionis et reipublicae in regno Galliae (Leiden, 1580) / [Conrad Memmius] Jehova Vindex (Bremen, 1590)

      Geneva, Leiden and Bremen: E. Vignon & Bernhardus Petrus, 1580-1590. Together 3 works in one volume. 8vo. (ORBIS): 174 pp., 2 blank ff. (COMMENTARIORUM): 8 ff., 208 pp. (JEHOVA VIDEX): 2 parts in one volume. 12 ff., 34 ff. Contemporary half pigskin blind-tooled, upper compartment with the monogram of the first owner "M.M.H." in the lower the date "1590," boards painted black, sprinkled edges (front endleaf loosening). IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio A fascinating Sammelband of three historical works relating to the Civil Wars in France at the end of the 16th-century, here preserved in a very attractive, strictly contemporary binding (dated 1590). ORBIS CHRISTIANI STATUS. First (?) Edition, bound third in the present Sammelband, which contains frequent and apparently unrecorded references to Elizabeth I, and also to America, i.a. the description of the Portuguese and Spanish possessions in the New World (p. 132 / 158), the West and East Indies (p. 138), an account of the Spanish Armada off the coast of Scotland and Ireland (pp. 143-4), etc. An extraordinary passage on p. 132 informs the reader that the vast lands of "America" (sic) and the West Indies were conquered "with appalling cruelty" (sic!) and were subjugated by authority of the Pope himself (sic!). The Orbis Christiani Status gives a strictly contemporary account of the rebellion of the Duc de Guise against royal authority, his assassination in 1588, and the eventual triumph of Henri IV. As per Hugh M. Richmond's 'Shakespeare's Navarre': "When Henri IV won his famous victories in 1589-1590 he became a folk-hero of the English, with their ineradicable taste for romance on horseback. There was every reason for fashionable young playwrights to exploit this popularity in the early 1590's, and Shakespeare was no exception. Love's Labour's Lost is thus in part an attempt to define the origins of a contemporary hero, and it develops motifs and character types which reappear in several of its author's later works. We are now able to judge what drew the young and ambitious Shakespeare to this material, and why it proved so seminal to his awareness. In the first place Love's Labour's Lost is a work of imaginative journalism exploiting contemporary political fashion" (SOURCE: Hugh M. Richmond, "Shakespeare's Navarre" in: The Huntington Library Quarterly, Vol. 42, No. 3. Summer, 1979, pp. 193-216). Adams O-256. Not in Moeckli, Les livres imprimes a Geneve de 1550 a 1600. Conrad Memmius' JEHOVA VINDEX: "The author of this somewhat rare opuscule, published just after the accession of Henry IV, quotes with approval the sentiment of Tertullian that the monarch is second only to God. There is no third power that is free from Subjection to him, or has authority over kings themselves. The writer is opposing the pretensions of Sixtus V; but in his zeal to support royalty, he ignores the superiority of the states-general which was asserted by Hotman. He even goes to the length of justifying the King's predecessor in his treacherous murder of the Duke of Guise and his brother, the cardinal ('Jehova Vindex, sive de rebus Gallicis,' Bremae, 1590). Whether the author, who calls himself Jacobus Francus, was a Frenchman or a German, he fully represented the sentiment of the Huguenots, and was rewarded by the papal authorities by honorable mention in the Index Librorum Prohibitorum" (SOURCE: Henry Martyn Baird, "Hotman and the 'Franco-Gallia'" in: American Historical Review, vol. 1, No. 4 [1896], pp. 629-630, notes). First published in 1589, the present copy belongs to the second edition. VD16 F-2252. Not in Moeckli, Les livres imprimes a Geneve de 1550 a 1600. Jean de Serres' five-part COMMENTARIORUM DE STATU RELIGIO ET REIPUBLICAE IN REGNO GALLIAE was the primary source for plot materials for William Heminges' "The Fatal Contract: A French Tragedy," written 1638/9, first acted in 1640, and first printed in 1653. This extraordinary Caroline play has been regarded as one of the most extreme of the revenge tragedies or "tragedies of blood" -- more graphic even than Titus Andronicus. Heminges almost certainly used the 1607 English translation entitled: "The General Inventory of the History of France" (SOURCE: Virginia Mason, Performing Blackness on English Stages, 1500-1800, pp. 121-2). The five parts of the commentaries were published separately, years apart, the first being compiled by Pierre de la Place. Ours is the First Edition of Part V, complete in itself, which relates signal events during the reign of Henri III from 1574-1576. Serres continued to work on the History until the end of his life, in 1596, at which time he had completed twelve books. Adams L-197. Moeckli, Geneve 99. * PROVENANCE: Stamps of the Bibliothek des Fursten- und Landsschulle zu Grimma (see: Tino Lichte, "Bucher aus mitteldeutschen Bibliotheken im Heidelberger Seminar") and also the Institut fur Kultur und Universalgeschichte Universitat Leipzig (withdrawn Nov. '58).

        Evangeliorium Dominicalium Summaria, Sanctorumq. Historiae paucissimis verbis expressae, iuxta Kalendarium Romanum; cum Iconibus in aere excusiis [bound with:] Sanctorum Kalendarii Romani...Imagines in Aere Excisae

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1580. Two books in one volume. First title lacking final signature g; 96 [of 112] pp. and 47 [of 55] engraved vignettes after Pieter van der Borcht. Second title lacking two leaves G7 & G8, 462 [of 464] pp. and numerous copper engravings after van der Borcht. Each with vignette title page, each leaf with copper-engraved vignette on recto, printed text beneath; versos blank except for double-ruled border and pagination. 1 vols. 16mo. Bound in contemporary crimson morocco, covers with elaborate blind-stamped borders and panel with blind-stamped cornerpieces, around a central circulal gilt-stamped cipher 'IHS'.... Title page a little soiled and stained, perforation in leaf C3 into image of plate, neat repair to margin of leaf D2. Lovely little book in a an attractive contemporary binding, lacking clasps. Plantin Press and the Copper Engraving The first part is a visual telling of the Gospels, with a copper-engraved vignette accompanied by short text for each Sunday of the year. The second part is a Calendar of Saints, according to the Roman Calendar adopted by the Council of Trent. An lovely example of Plantin's pioneering use of the copper-engraving, as opposed to the woodcut, for book illustration. According to Voet, "In fact the EVANGELIORUM DOMINICALIUM SUMMARIAi..., notwithstanding that it is presented formally as a separate publication, was considered to form an integral part of the IMAGINES IN AERE EXCISAE, and was normall sold together with it. The engraver of the second title was Paul Uten Waele, who quite possibly engraved the first series as well.

        Sophoclis tragoedi VII. In quibus prter multa menda sublata, carminum omnium ratio hactenus obscurior, nunc apertior proditur: opera Gulielmi Canteri Vltraiectini`

      Antuerpiae: Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1580. Text in Greek. 431, [17] pp. Printer's device on title-page. 1 vols. 16mo. 18th-century tan polished calf, gilt spine, leather label (slightly chipped); head slightly rubbed, upper joint cracked but holding, some light waterstainining to lower margin of last few leaves. Early gift inscriptions of front endpapers (see below). Text in Greek. 431, [17] pp. Printer's device on title-page. 1 vols. 16mo. Sophocles to Plantin to Eton to the Blackstones. One of the landmark 16th-century editions of the great Greek tragedian, published by press of Christopher Plantin in Antwerp, and edited with notes by the young Dutch scholar Willian Canter, whose earlier edition of Euripides "established a new era" (Samdys) in the printing of the Greek tragic poets. It was Canter, in his earlier edition of Euripides, who first established the arrangement of the choral odes in enumerated lines of Strophe and Antistrophe - a practice continued here and in his subsequent Aeschylus and which continues today. Canter's edition of Sophocles, with his corrections to the text of Turnebus presented in his Latin Notes (pp. 429-436), remained in use for 200 years (cf. Jebb in his Introduction to his edition of 1887) This particular copy has a fascinating provenance, with historic associations from ETON. The flyleaf bears the ink inscription: "Wm. Cole / E dono J. Foster, eruditissimi Scholae Etonensis Archididascali. 1772" [Given to W. COLE by JOHN FOSTER, learned Headmaster of Eton College. 1772." On the facing endpaper, in later hand, is the ink inscription: "Henricus Lee / E Dono M. Cole, uxoris Gulielmio Cole, Prebendarii Westmensteriensii Cathedrae. 1812." [Given to HENRY LEE by MARY COLE, wife of WILLIAM COLE, Prebendary of Westmenster Cathedral. 1812."] JOHN FOSTER (1731-1774), classical scholar, was Headmaster at Eton from 1765 to 1773. According to the DNB, "Foster was not successful in his administration of the school, 'his government was defective, his authority insufficient,'" Foster retired from Eton in July 0f 1773, "in hope of recruiting his health, which had been sadly shattered by his efforts to cope with the difficulties of his headship." WILLIAM COLE (1753-1806), also a classical scholar with close ties to Eton. According to the DNB, "In 1766 he was admitted at Eton and in 1773 was made scholar of King's College, Cambridge ... .In 1777 he returned [from Cambridge to Eton as a master, but, having ruptured a blood-vessel while an undergraduate, found himself not strong enough for the post, and resigned it in 1780." Under the patronage of the Duke of Marlborough his career advanced and he was eventually appointed prebendary of Westminster by the Archbishop of Canterbury. "In 1795 he married MARY [BLACKSTONE], the second daughter of Sir William Blackstone, but left no issue ...

        Constitutionum Provincialium Tarraconensium Libri Quinque.

      Tarracone, Apud Philippum Mey, 1580. - in-4. 28ff. 411pp. 24ff. Plein vélin souple, titre manuscrit au dos (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage important pour l'histoire de Tarragone, publié par le grand humaniste et historien espagnol Antonio Agustin i Albanell. Né à Saragosse en 1516, Agustin étudia dans les universités d'Alcala de Henares et de Salamanque, puis dans celle de Bologne en Italie. Il fut un éminent jurisconsulte qui se vit confier d'importantes fonctions, dont celle d'auditeur dans la Sacra Rota Romana pour laquelle il avait eu l'appui de l'empereur Charles V. Evêque de Lérida en 1561 il fut nommé en 1576 évêque de Tarragone où il mourut en 1586. Cet ouvrage contient les règles - issues notamment des différents conciles qui avaient eu lieu à Tarragone- qui organisaient la vie sociale et la vie ecclésiastique. Il contient des directives sur les moeurs, l'économie, le commerce, l'alimentation, les sortilèges, les Juifs, les Arabes, etc. "Fruit de la réforme catholique autant que du renouveau des études juridiques, le droit écclésiastique fut également l'objet de publications savantes autant que de commenaires érudits ( ) Les travaux d'Antonio Agustin ne furent pas négligeables à cet égard. Philologue, numismate, historien du droit romain, il apporta à l'étude du droit canonique toutes les ressources de l'humanisme juridique dont il était l'un des meilleurs interprètes. Citons de lui son "Epitome Juris Pontifici" et ses "Constitutionum provincialium Tarraconensium libri quinque (1580), recueil des conciles de Tarragone et des ordonnances des archevêques de cette ville depuis les temps les plus reculés" (Sutto). Rousseurs, assez prononcées aux premiers feuillets. Infime travail de ver dans la marge intérieure de quelques pages, sans atteinte au texte. Bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 59845. Cf. "Antonio Agustín between Renaissance and Counter-Reform" ( Londres: The Warburg Institute, 1993). C. Sutto, "Les assises juridiques de l'histoire" [in:"L'Epoque de la Renaissance (Crises et essors nouveaux, 1560-1610)"]. [Attributes: First Edition]

      ANTUERPIAE: APUD IOANNEM BELLERUM SUB AQUILA AUREA. In 24. Dim. 13x8 cm. Pp. (36)+370+(24).Rarissima edizione senza data ma del 1580 della nota leggenda "Barlaam Iosaphat". Il racconto, attribuito a San Giovanni Damasceno (676-749) e popolarissimo in età medievale narra la conversione di Iosafat per merito del Santo eremita Barlaam. Sembra che la storia venne in realtà ricalcata sul modello della vicenda della conversione del Buddha. San Giovanni Damasceno venne dichiarato dottore della chiesa nel 1890. Opera redatta a cura di Georges Trapezuntius. Alla fine del volume la breve opera "De comparatione regis et monachi" di Giovanni Cristostomo a cura di Germain Brice.

Gore d'acqua al margine inferiore delle prime 4 carte. Very scarce not dated edition but of around 1580 of the famous legend "Barlaam Iosaphat". The tale, attribuited to Saint John of Damascus (676-749) and very popular in Middle Age talks about the conversion of Iosafat for the merit of the Heremit Barlaam. It seems that the history was in reality compared on the model of the happening of conversion of Buddha. Saint John of Damascus was declaired doctor of church in 1890. Work redacted by Georges Trapezuntius At the end of the volume the brief work "De comparatione regis et monachi" by Giovanni Cristostomo by Germain Brice.

En el siglo XIII no existía el puerto que se aprecia en la imagen, y las casas eran de madera, pero el diseño de la ciudad era similar: sobresale la catedral, el Cabildo de Arriba marca el límite con el camino de Castilla y la ría de Becedo dividía la ciudad.

        Copies of the Draft Depositions of the witnesses on each side, (Emelene, of Halsall) and HUNTER (Thomas, of Aughton, both near Ormskirk, Lancashire)

      1580 - including the husband, in English, and of the Final Decree by Robert Leche, LL.D., principal officer of the Archdeacon of Chester's court, in Latin, all with transcriptions. Thomas Tatlock, 56, and William Scarsbrick, 40, who had known both since infancy, depone for Emelene, that at the time of the marriage, 2½ years previously at the house of Thomas Halsall, by "Sir James, Curat of Formbie", Emelene was "about ten years of age" and Thomas "not above thirteen", even on the morning of the marriage the children "knewe nott of ytt but were compelled . by there parents", Thomas Hunter refers to his coming "to lawfull yeares of discretion", Emelene had lived at his father's house till last Christmas, but "he could not abyde the saide Emelene and never woulde", he approached Scarsbrick as his kinsman, and Tatlock as his father's executor, to procure a divorce, he had never "saide or done any acte that he thincketh in his conscience hee ought to have her to his wife" and vouches for her virginity, he can not tell "whye they were maried in a howse" instead of in church. The final decree says that everything has been thoroughly considered, confirms that nothing Thomas has done invalidates his claim, that the marriage is annulled and both are free to remarry with a clear conscience. The depositions 4 sides 12" x 8¼", the judgment 1 side 11" x 10½", Chester, 24th March 1579 (new style the depositions, neatly restored at top and bottom with old paper, with loss of a number of words or phrases (most can be supplied by context The depositions are interesting as working copies, with considerable running emendations and second thoughts. The judgment bears a note of the promulgation of the decree in another hand and a list of people present. William Withnes appeared for Emelene, and Henry Pennant for Thomas, though both children were in fact seeking the same end.

Interessantes Blatt aus Du Perac, I vestigi delle antichità di Roma, welches erstmals 1575 erschienen, später jedoch mehrfach wiederaufgelegt worden war. Du Peracs Veduten zeichnen sich durch große topographische Genauigkeit aus und sind eine hervorragende Quelle für die damals noch existierenden Ruinen. Der Betrachter blickt über die Engelsbrücke auf das Hadriansmausoleum, links der um 1500 von Alexander VI. erbaute Passetto, der gedeckte Verbindungsgang (und Fluchtweg) von St. Peter. Interesting picture out of Du Perac, I vestigi delle antichità di Roma, that has been published for the first time in 1575. Du Peracs vendutes are characterized by great topographical accurateness and are an exellent source for the ruins that stilll existed at that time. The observer views over the angels-bridge onto the Hadriansmausoleum, at the left side the Passetto that was build by Alexander VI in 1500, the covered alleyway of St. Peter.

        Missa... for 8 voices. Manuscript music. Tenor 1 part. Italian, ca. 1600

      Large octavo (ca. 240 x 179 mm.). Sewn into early grey wrappers with manuscript titling to upper: "Primus Chorus Tenor Missa binae Tenor Primi Chori à 8." 14 pp. including one ruled page without notation. Notated ink on hand-ruled staves. & & This work is unrecorded in both Grove and RISM. . Mel, a Flemish composer, was "mainly active in Italy. He was of a landed family whose fortunes were closely linked to the Duchy of Lorraine... After Spain annexed Portugal in 1580 Mel went to Rome, where his name appears in that year on a subscription list for two new bells for the Flemish church, S Maria in Campo Santo. Whether or not he studied composition with Palestrina as Baini claimed, his first published works indicate that he was well acquainted with Palestrina's style. The title-pages and dedications of his printed books show that in addition to his continued allegiance to Lorraine... He enjoyed the friendship and patronage of the Valignani, the Henrici and Cardinal Gabriel Paleotto... Mel was well educated and a prolific composer whose aristocratic lineage and connections seem to have ensured him at least a modest fame. His works have not been edited, and have therefore not received the study they deserve. His sacred pieces show him to have been a craftsman, well trained in Dutch counterpoint and a diligent imitator of the Palestrinian style." Patricia Ann Myers in Grove online

Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio A fascinating Sammelband of three historical works relating to the Civil Wars in France at the end of the 16th-century, here preserved in a very attractive, strictly contemporary binding (dated 1590). ORBIS CHRISTIANI STATUS. First (?) Edition, bound third in the present Sammelband, which contains frequent and apparently unrecorded references to Elizabeth I, and also to America, i.a. the description of the Portuguese and Spanish possessions in the New World (p. 132 / 158), the West and East Indies (p. 138), an account of the Spanish Armada off the coast of Scotland and Ireland (pp. 143-4), etc. An extraordinary passage on p. 132 informs the reader that the vast lands of "America" (sic) and the West Indies were conquered "with appalling cruelty" (sic!) and were subjugated by authority of the Pope himself (sic!). The Orbis Christiani Status gives a strictly contemporary account of the rebellion of the Duc de Guise against royal authority, his assassination in 1588, and the eventual triumph of Henri IV. As per Hugh M. Richmond's 'Shakespeare's Navarre': "When Henri IV won his famous victories in 1589-1590 he became a folk-hero of the English, with their ineradicable taste for romance on horseback. There was every reason for fashionable young playwrights to exploit this popularity in the early 1590's, and Shakespeare was no exception. Love's Labour's Lost is thus in part an attempt to define the origins of a contemporary hero, and it develops motifs and character types which reappear in several of its author's later works. We are now able to judge what drew the young and ambitious Shakespeare to this material, and why it proved so seminal to his awareness. In the first place Love's Labour's Lost is a work of imaginative journalism exploiting contemporary political fashion" (SOURCE: Hugh M. Richmond, "Shakespeare's Navarre" in: The Huntington Library Quarterly, Vol. 42, No. 3. Summer, 1979, pp. 193-216). Adams O-256. Not in Moeckli, Les livres imprimes a Geneve de 1550 a 1600. Conrad Memmius' JEHOVA VINDEX: "The author of this somewhat rare opuscule, published just after the accession of Henry IV, quotes with approval the sentiment of Tertullian that the monarch is second only to God. There is no third power that is free from Subjection to him, or has authority over kings themselves. The writer is opposing the pretensions of Sixtus V; but in his zeal to support royalty, he ignores the superiority of the states-general which was asserted by Hotman. He even goes to the length of justifying the King's predecessor in his treacherous murder of the Duke of Guise and his brother, the cardinal ('Jehova Vindex, sive de rebus Gallicis,' Bremae, 1590). Whether the author, who calls himself Jacobus Francus, was a Frenchman or a German, he fully represented the sentiment of the Huguenots, and was rewarded by the papal authorities by honorable mention in the Index Librorum Prohibitorum" (SOURCE: Henry Martyn Baird, "Hotman and the 'Franco-Gallia'" in: American Historical Review, vol. 1, No. 4 [1896], pp. 629-630, notes).

        Question de Amor. Del cumplimiento de Nicolas Nuñez

      Lovain, Roger Velpio 1580 - En Lovain, en casa de Roger Velpio, a la enseña del castello de Angele(sin fecha pero circa 1570-80). 12vo. (1), 136,(1). Al colofón está fechado en Ferrara a 17 de abril de 1512 pero es imaginaria.Sign A-L12,M6.Marca tipográfica de impresor al reverso del último folio. Ejemplar completo. Encuadernación del s XIXen tafilete marrón oscuro con doble filete en planos y banda de decoración vertical con ramilletes ocupando un tercio del plano.Cabeza,cortes,cantos y contra cantos dorados. Ejemplar de rareza extraordinaria que Gallardo y Salvá no vieron y que Palau cita sin haberlo visto. La única referencia es Peeters Fontainas(nr 1087) y donde este coleccionista y bibliógrafo data en torno a 1580 esta edición. Solamente hay un ejemplar registrado en el catálogo de patrimonio bibliográfico en la Biblioteca Nacional(el ejemplar Gayangos). Esta obra anónima se imprime por primera vez en valencia en 1513 escrita en prosa y verso La Novela Sentimental es un subgénero literario histórico que se desarrolla entre el Pre renacimiento del siglo XV y el Renacimiento de la primera mitad del siglo XVI. Se incluye dentro del archigénero épico narrativo y se compone en prosa con versos intercalados, a veces en forma epistolar; posee temática amorosa, frecuentemente dentro de las leyes del llamado amor cortés.El género surge a mediados del siglo XV; algunos de los elementos externos proceden de los libros de caballerías. Posee tema amoroso y es más breve que otra formas de narracion; su acción es predominantemente psicológica, interior, y por eso incluye cartas y poemas. Su desenlace es trágico y triste. La dama es cruel y el enamorado muere aunque consiga coronar su amor sí lo consigue. Se inspira en la Elegia di madonna Fiammeta de Boccacio quien a su vez evoca las Heroidas del romano Ovidio cartas de amantes despechadas. El estilo es amanerado, propio de la poesía lírica cancioneril y va dirigida a un público cortesano; su protagonista, que emplea la primera persona, es masculino. Empezaron el género Juan Rodríguez del Padrón o de la Cámara (Siervo libre de amor c. 1440) y la Sátira de felice e infelice vida (hacia 1453) del Condestable don Pedro de Portugal (1429-1466), dirigida a su hermana, la Reina Isabel. El género llega a su madurez con las obras de San Pedro y Juan de Flores. Del primero son Tratado de amores de Arnalte y Lucenda (1491) y Cárcel de amor(1492), considerada esta última la obra maestra del género. También pertenece a esta etapa la continuación de la Cárcel de amor de Nicolás Núñez, del año 1496, en forma de sueño en que los amantes se justifican; las dos obras se imprimen juntas y de esta forma en diversas ediciones en la primera mitad del s XVI.

        RARISSIMA VEDUTA A VOLO D' UCCELLO DELLA CITTA DI MANTOVA.

      - Incisione originale su rame di cm. 49,5x37,7 + circa 4cm. di margini. Cartiglio in basso a sinistra:"Mantova città della lombardia traspadana.". A destra in basso:"Matteo Florimi For. in Siena". Il Florimi, attivo a Siena dal 1580 al 1612 riprende la tradizione del cartografo Lafreri e ristampa precedenti rami del '500. Queste incisioni rarissime e ricercate non provengono da atlanti, ma venivano edite separatamente. L' autore pubblicò varie città, Messina, Padova, Ferrara ecc. Ma Mantova è una delle più rare e ricercate. Il nostro esemplare è stato abilmente restaurato per mancanze al margine bianco, che non toccano la parte incisa, e uno strappo centrale lungo la piega mediana, rinforzato posteriormente e pressochè invisibile anteriormente. Incisione veramente bella e in ottima tiratura. Una delle più rare vedute della città di Mantova.[f18]
